The death of a child is the most unspeakable loss. No matter how old our children are at the time of their death, we have never had enough time together. We yearn to share more birthdays, holidays, vacations, phone calls, and laughs. The loss of an adult child leaves a void of expectation of waiting for the phone to ring, for them to walk in the door, for them to call our name, to hear the car pull into the driveway. Our society does not know how to be present with grief and pain and so the journey of child loss is in turn incredibly isolating.
A Memory Grows offers a safe place for conversation and for tears and laughter that often go hand in hand. Those who attend are surrounded by others who understand the journey of grief and who want to learn about your child, speak their name and help you to create a legacy of love that will never be forgotten.
Death does not end the parent/child bond. We grieve because we love and love always carries on. It is that love that we celebrate during our time together.
